There are different varieties of hosting plans appropriate for different websites in relation to the resources or the hosting environment they demand. To select the most suitable hosting service for your online portal, you have to estimate what server-side software it requires, how many visits per day you expect at the start and in the long run, as well as any other special needs that may have to be answered.

The most suitable choice for small scale web portals with a few hundred or a few thousand viewers is a shared hosting package. With this form of webspace hosting, each user pays only for their account, which reduces the overall price per person critically. There are different web hosting plans varying from one host to another, offering different quotas of web space and traffic, different email box account quotas and so on. The privilege is that you can pay for an account that will offer the features your website in fact requires. You will not have to pay plenty of cash for an account you will not use, or end up with a small sized account that cannot accommodate the site. We, at Hepsia, offer a big variety of hosting accounts appropriate for personal or small business pages that even include pre-activated script-based systems like Joomla, Mambo, Drupal or WordPress - to make things simpler. If you begin with a low-end plan and you require more resources, moving to a more powerful account requires only a click.
Shared website hosting - Negative Aspects
A drawback of the shared website hosting environment is that the web hosting servers have some software programs installed on them and you are unable to activate additional software platforms. Specific web pages, mainly web storefronts, request applications to be available on the web hosting server for them to operate, and with a shared web hosting solution, you can activate only software programs that do not require complete root access.
Private Virtual Web Hosting Servers and Dedicated Servers
For web portals that need complete root-level access, or if your web portal has many thousands or even 1 000 000's of visitors per day, what you need is a VPS or a dedicated server. A VPS hosting server is a virtual emulation of a dedicated hosting server and it acts in a strictly identical manner.
Both platforms generally come with complete root-level access and can be restarted via a software platform by the client, autonomously from the hosting company. Analogous to the shared web hosting plans, the VPS and the dedicated web hosting server plans come with diverse specifications depending on what the hosting vendor has to offer. A VPS web hosting server account offers guaranteed disk storage space, random access memory and CPU quotas that can at times be extended for short spans of time in case there are available resources on the physical machine. With a dedicated hosting server, the only limiting factor is the hardware equipment it is availing of, and it can be configured by changing or appending components. A virtual private web server is simpler to administer as it arrives with a virtualization tool, which can be used to restart it, to install software applications, explore statistics, etc. The administration of a dedicated web server is more complex, so such an account would rather be utilized by experienced customers.
Dedicated Hosting Servers
However, some hosting providers offer managed dedicated server hosting services where they implement server administration procedures instead of the client. This can be a part of plan or an extra upgrade.
